Many evenings you will find yourself getting together with other, students, leaders and the home stay families to participate in various social activities.

While there is no typical home stay experience, Many people  will stay in touch with their host families for years to come.

One thing certain- the home stay is bound to be the most wonderfully dramatic and memorable part of the trip. Each year our clients shall reflect on their home stay as the best part of their trip.

Lake Bunyonyi is named after bird exsistence. It simply means a place of many little birds. It is located in southwestern Uganda, kabala district-Uganda and 11kms from Nyabushabi village where our Home stay is. Lake Bunyonyi is a highland lake estimated to lie at an altitude of about 1950m above sea level.
It is described by its beauty surrounded by hills, intense cultivated and many agriculture activities and its unique concentration of 29 islands each with its historical attachments. It is the third deepest lake in the world but with fresh and safe water for swimming. It is a lava damed lake as a result of Muhabura/virunga Volcanicity eruptions that took place centuries ago ‘ about 10,000 years’
It is the most beautiful lake in Uganda but most tourists have racked it the most in the world because of it nature around, breathtaking swimming, relalaxing and its formation. It is a stopover to the Gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable national park, Baatwa(pigyms)experience and Bird watching around the lake shore and islands is what makes a birder wonder what a birding destination is.
For a better lasting and memorable experience, do not accept to be driven in a car to the lake, because you will miss great views, scenery, agriculture activities and African skills as you take simple community walk/Hike that will introduce to black smith, tea plantations, Rushoroza Catholic Cathedral and a panoramic view of the great kabale city.
